St. John villa expert

Know Before You Go...

Jazz Villa is the ideal Caribbean getaway for families and couples. The four bedrooms are situated on either side of the 2-level villa, giving every guest their own private retreat. A large living area and fully equipped kitchen are perfect for gathering inside to enjoy meals or make plans, or you can head outside to the sunny pool terrace where you'll find a nicely sized pool that overlooks the sea and surrounding island. Jazz has everything you need for a great St. John vacation, and Cruz Bay is nearby for restaurants, shops, and island nightlife.

Stunning ocean and sunset views!

Jazz Villa enjoys a quiet hillside location in Chocolate Hole on the west end of St. John. The villa's south and west facing orientation provides great 180-degree views that include St. Croix, Hart Bay, Chocolate Hole Harbor, and St. Thomas. The romantic Caribbean sunsets, and the twinkling lights of the distant islands help to add to the romance that Jazz Villa offers.

Jazz Villa provides a peaceful and serene setting and rests upon an over-sized lot accented by colorful and mature tropical landscaping. The setting also provides enough privacy for discreet clothing-optional sunbathing.

Although you feel quite removed from civilization, Cruz Bay is an easy 7-10 minute's drive on paved roads, and the beach bar, fine restaurants, and spa and fitness room at the Westin Resort are less than a 5-minute's drive away.

DESIGN: One of Jazz's most popular features is its design. The functional 2-level design places the 40- x 18-foot pool and large surrounding sundeck, two master bedroom/baths, and the living, dining and kitchen areas on the upper level. Because you park on the upper level, Jazz is a good choice for those with mobility problems. Two sets of stairs (1 interior, 1 exterior) lead to the two master bedroom/baths and patios on the lower level. In addition to a well-liked floor plan and design, in 2000-2001 Jazz underwent an extensive and expensive top to bottom renovation, and the result is a spacious, very comfortable vacation home that is well-suited for families and couples.

LIVING/DINING: The wicker furniture in the living area is both comfortable and attractive. Vaulted ceilings, tiled floors, and native stone walls add to the tropical environment, while over-sized sliding glass doors merge the tiled pool deck and interior living areas. Cable TV/DVD, a stereo/CD and Wi-Fi internet are also provided.

The interior dining table seats 6-8 and there is also a dining table (with seating for up to 6) on the pool deck.

KITCHEN: The kitchen is well-equipped to serve meals for 2-10. A gas barbecue grill is on the deck along with a private outdoor shower. The washer/dryer is on the lower level. Beach chairs, all linens and towels and telephones are provided.

BEDROOMS: The 4 large, air-conditioned bedrooms (2 kings, 2 queens) are located on opposite ends of the villa on both levels to insure maximum privacy. All bedrooms open through screened sliding glass doors to the pool deck (upper) or private patios (lower). All bedrooms have private tiled baths. The lower left bedroom is accessed by interior stairs, while the lower right is accessed by exterior stairs.
